As the old saying goes, may you live in interesting times.
In what was one of the greatest political stunners in modern American history, the world awoke Wednesday morning to a President-elect Donald J. Trump. While some people are likely standing around the water cooler today reflecting on what this means for America and the world at large, for those of us working in the healthcare design field, we have to think about what this means for our businesses and our clients’ businesses. So, what does a Donald Trump presidency look like for healthcare?
In a phrase, buckle up. We’re in for an interesting ride.
Over the past six years our clients have been busy adapting to the world of the Affordable Care Act, value-based purchasing and surviving in a world where the economics of what we do and how we do it has radically altered how healthcare is organized, financed and delivered. All that’s about to change, yet again.
